West Virginia State Police will be on the lookout more often for drunken and impaired drivers.

State Police say in a news release that grant money through a partnership with the Governor's Highway Safety Program will enable troopers to increase DUI patrols late this summer and in the early fall.

The release says the increased patrols will be in the area of events such as high school and college athletic contests, and fairs and festivals.

State Police spokesman Lt. Michael Baylous says such events routinely result in a higher number of vehicles on the roadways.
